Father’s Day Prayer of Confession

O God, Father that you are,
you know what is right for us,
but too often we only want our way or no way,
instead of your way.

Have mercy upon us when we turn from you.
Forgive us when we do not realize
your fatherly love and direction for us.

Have mercy upon us indeed,
and teach us anew how to follow you,
Father that you are.
We pray this through your Son,
our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
